My first full week of work in 2013 has ended. Lord knows some Saturday Soup is in order!
Two thumbs up of the week: To German-Ghanian footballer Kevin-Prince Boateng for walking off the field because of the racist chants against him (yes, in 2013) by
nuts fans of the opposing team.
SMH (shaking my head) story of the week: Louie Giglio wont be giving the benediction on Inauguration Day. His crime: a mid-1990s sermon on a Christian response to homosexuality. I can’t …
“Really? Seriously?” of the week: The Sisterhood. Has anyone watched this
train wreck show? All I can say, based on the preview clip below (in my best Joyce Meyer voice), is “Why, Lord, why?”
Innovation of the week: The Lifestraw. Saw this awesome product on Interesting Engineering’s Facebook page. It purifies water before it reaches the lips. Ingenious. Think of the millions of people worldwide this device can help!
Video of the week: Any selfless gesture has me at “hello.” Giving away your home for a year to a homeless family? Priceless. Tony Tolbert, may your tribe increase!
Cause of the week (and always): Yesterday was End Human Trafficking Day. My go-to anti-trafficking sites are The Exodus Road, Abolition International, and the A21 Campaign, all of which are strong on information and advocacy.
